Generator Installations

A backup energy system is a smart and responsible way to be prepared for emergencies. Natural disasters and even common mishaps can cause power outages in your home or community, creating inconvenience and potentially putting your family's safety at risk.

By having our professionals install a backup power generator on your property, you'll be able to keep all your essential appliances running during any power outage. That means you can enjoy most of your home comforts without interruption. No worry about food going bad in your fridge/freezer, no concern about how you are going to stay cool/warm, no fretting over how you are going to prepare a meal or power your devices.

Important things to bear in mind:

  • Generators should be wired into your electrical panel by a licensed electrician
  • Generators need to be inspected twice a year
  • Generators can be set to automatically turn on in power outages
  • Generators can be combined with battery systems and solar energy systems for full protection and efficiency
  • Connections to a home are regulated by NEC standards

The Importance of Professional Generator Installation

You might be thinking, “Do I really need a licensed electrician to install my backup power generator?” Absolutely! Improper installation is extremely dangerous and could result in severe injuries or even death. In addition, you will need to ensure the installation is performed correctly in order to pass an inspection by a local inspector. We’ll also make sure that your new generator is placed at a proper distance from your home to protect you from poisonous gases.

Maintaining Your Backup Power Generator

What good would your standby generator do if it didn’t come on during a power outage? Such is the experience of many who fail to properly maintain their system. Your generator should be inspected by a professional two times a year, just like your HVAC system. You should also have your generator serviced after using it continuously for 24 hours or more. The better you take care of your generator, the longer it will last. We can help you maintain your generator so that it can be there for you through decades of power outages.
